“Very Green”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

This little palace is very interesting. The guided tour for 100 baht is informative. Take along some water and snacks and enjoy the garden.

“A pretty place to see cultural history of Thailand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

A five minute walk from Phaya Thai BTS along Thanon Si Ayutthaya Rd, next to the Deja Hospital, as this quaint museum with a unique collection of ancient artifacts, beautiful wooden traditional Thai-style houses and immaculately kept gardens. There is a nominal entrance fee, which gets you a guided tour and a free bamboo fan, but I thought it was worth the visit to experience a more intimate view of the private residence styles, lovely antiques and artifacts that you would not expect tucked away in the heart of Bangkok city.

“Inexpensive museum with some interesting exhibits but nothing really fantastic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Around 10 mins walk from Phaya Thai BTS, its a small low rise museum with a few wooden buildings that houses various exhibits. I find some of the royal paraphernalia interesting and looking at how lived when they resided here. Other than that, this takes a minimal amount of time to cover and is good if you like a bit of history, otherwise there are many larger and better attractions in Bangkok and isn't worth a dedicated visit if you want to cover many places in a short time.

“Small and interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

A good way for people not having enough time to visit the "classic" museums, to have at least seen a nice and interesting one, in a peaceful atmosphere, avoiding the crowd!
N.B: No photos inside...;)
